Lily of the Valley

Oh, Deer!

Tamino and Aurelia were horrified to see that deer have broken into the back garden, and have eaten most of the Campanula that were about to bloom…

They rushed over to the Lily pot…

… Aurelia counted them all…

…and reported all the Lilies were safe.  Tamino doesn’t like to climb around in his princely clothes, but offered to stand guard against the interloping deer…

…but Aurelia picked the flowers instead and brought them indoors.

relief

Tamino is a bit conflicted at this solution, but understands that the lilies were planted to be picking flowers.

Meanwhile, the humans are busy looking for the holes in our anti-ungulate fortifications.

  1. oh no, the hungry deer! they are very persistent. My experience is that they don’t like anything with a strong scent – it throws off their ability to be aware of their surroundings. Good luck.

  2. What an unfortunate incident, but, it looks like you at least have a guard on duty to help out. Lily of the Valley are such beautiful flowers. May their fragrance inhabit your house.

  3. That was so gallant of Tamino to offer his services to guard and protect Aurelia’s loved Lilies. I think Aurelia was wise to bring them indoors…Lily of the Valley and Gardenia are my favorite scented flowers.

  4. what a pleasure to see gallant and elegant Tamino in action. So glad the invaders did not eat all of your flowers!
